“This is not an example of a manufacturer simply taking an existing machine and modifying it to fit a market. The EW240E was developed specifically for the waste and recycling segment,” said Matthew McLean, product manager, Volvo Construction Equipment. “With a newly designed center frame mounted on a reinforced undercarriage with 9-foot axles and extra-wide outriggers, the new material handler is ideal for medium-duty applications such as handling waste material blocks and loading and unloading scrap.”
Built for productivity
The 26-ton EW240E material handler has a 173-horsepower Tier 4 Final Volvo D6 engine. With a straight boom measuring 21 feet, 4 inches and a 16-foot, 5-inch gooseneck arm, the machine has a maximum reach of 36 feet, 9 inches.
Designed to keep productivity and uptime high, the EW240E material handler is ideal for applications requiring optimum reach and visibility. It is manufactured with a dedicated upper structure and reinforced undercarriage to withstand the forces in scrap sorting applications.
Other key features include the following:
Volvo wheeled excavators are eligible for a free year of ActiveCare Direct, the Volvo telematics service that provides 24/7/365 machine monitoring and fleet utilization reporting directly from Volvo.
Additionally, all Volvo wheeled excavators are now backed by the Volvo Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty, which covers the frame, boom and arm for the entirety of the initial ownership period.
